Folsom Oaks watercolor -- Most people think of Folsom as the prison Johnny Cash sang about but its also a huge man made lake behind Folsom Dam that feeds into the Sacramento area's water supply. The dam (lake) is fed by the American River. Around Folsom Lake on one side is the famous prison but the lake is surrounded by the Folsom State Park and Recreation area. I don't know how many hundreds of acres the park is but it's huge with many heritage oaks and abundant wildlife. A great place to paint too.
